Price reduced June 2016! You've just found one of the best deals possible for a cruising sailboat this large!  This Morgan is a comfortable passage maker for certain, translating to a well-rested crew enjoying happy and safe arrivals.

The original Perkins purrs reliably, as they typically do, and a wealth of recent boat upgrades includes all new polished-stainless hatches and opening portlights, replacing the leaky plastic and aluminum-frame originals.  As usual with a boat this age some mostly cosmetic maintenance is ongoing, but the key ingredients of a bluewater cruiser are easily seen aboard.  Write or call with your questions!

Your ideal ketch is conveniently located in one of the finest cruising areas possible: the pristine Western Caribbean!  Now safely tucked up the beautiful Rio Dulce in Guatemala for hurricane season, same-day cruising from the Rio can have you snorkeling or diving the world’s 2nd largest barrier reef – Belize it!  Or, it’s just an overnighter away to experience the Bay Islands of Honduras (Utila, Roatan, Guanaja).  Farther voyages can have you enjoying Mexico, Cuba, Jamaica, Caymans, and Panama before returning to the Rio sanctuary year after year, as countless cruisers do.  Great Yacht, Great Location… it’s time to have fun!!

Proceed with the peace of mind fostered by a brokerage reputation built on professionalism and integrity.  SYS Brokerage only accepts yacht listings with realistic or bargain prices, listings that our brokers can represent truthfully as being worthwhile.
